Notes from Larkhaven Farm, Week 2
“… I witnessed my first lambing. Second lamb was a breech, but both are fine so far.
“I can hear sheep from my cabin, & birds,
“& more birds.
“Yesterday it was noted Teardrop’s bag was filling up (her milk was coming in) & today she surprised us with twins as well. Not that twins are uncommon for sheep; she hadn’t looked very big.
“Sheep can & do often have twins, triplets, & quads, although sometimes the littlest one doesn’t make it.
“Did you know that lambs’ tails go crazy in an almost corkscrew motion when they feed? Imagine a little lamb muscling her way to an open teat on the lamb bar, her little tail twitching & spinning around.
“I climbed up to the top of one of the hills this afternoon. Amazing view.
“I am sore & tired & happy.”
